Beaver Section News
This is our last week before the Summer Holidays and we had a Teddy Bear's picnic. We played games outside and then had a picnic - the Beavers were given a hot dog, a biscuit and a packet of crisps and a drink. The weather was kind to us on both nights. On the Wednesday we said good bye to Joe, Tommy and Arthur. We wish them every success in Cubs and hope they enjoy their time with the Group.
This week we had a visit from one of the volunteers from the Stretford Food Bank. She explained to the Beavers about the people who attend and how they have to be referred to them to get access to the food. She also explained what sort of foods they would like to be donated. Each Beaver was asked to bring an item of food next week, which will be donated to the food bank. Following this the Beavers were given a 'spot the difference' sheet and on the back of the sheet was a reminder of the items that can be donated.
Over the Weekend the Beavers spent one night inside and one night in a tent. They also took part in various activities which will help them with the various Challenge Badges as well as, hopefully, enjoying themselves. The weather no doubt helped with a fine and relatively warm weekend. It was a Group Camp with Cubs, Scouts, Explorers and a number of parents working and playing together.
